On a GL1000? Not easy. The only "reverse" I've seen for bikes that weren't originally designed for it (i.e. 1500, 1800) use little rubber wheels that contact and drive the rear tire directly. I haven't seen one for sale in a very long time, however.

I usually just use my legs, sorry I had to.
It's not what you buy, it's what you build.

The Litestar Pulse enclosed "motorcycles" used a reverse unit that engaged the rear wheel as I mentioned:
